My 13 months old boy, has two mouth ulcers on the tip of his tongue. What's the best treatment for it?

Cause?: I would be more concerned with the cause than the treatment at first. If it is a bite, no worries...It'll go away.

I hesitate to put a small child like this on antivirals, so it becomes a question of the frequency and severity of the lesions. See your dentist/doctor about this. ...Read more
